Isn't that just a mirrored version of this years though?

That's the point where I get interested gel. 4K OLED at 55 inches minimum in 2 years time is what I'm aiming for and just hope that the blue issue has been resolved by Samsung at that point as I don't really want to buy an LG TV of any sort as everyone I know with an LG TV has had problems.

With OLED being in it's infancy and potentially spending £3500 maximum for me I would much rather buy a Samsung, but that's just me. 

 

 

Samsung seem to have stopped on OLED though!

 

No they haven't. They're not releasing any models this year, but are spending more than anyone else in OLED R&D.

That's the one, it just means that there will only be an LG one then (or two)?

It's the same Gallery TV that you have linked. Only 1080p and very expensive.

I don't know what you're seeing. Both conclusion and verdict is 9 out of 10. That's what I see. I'll try to copy paste:

I am talking about black level, dymamic range and contrast - the most important part.
